An innovative model for getting new knowledge into practice is through new knowledge discussion groups. The interdisciplinary group discussions offer an interesting and effective means for incorporating new research knowledge into practice. Through the discussion of articles between practitioners and researchers, interdisciplinary learning also takes place. This poster outlines the process and evaluation of three different interdisciplinary new knowledge groups. One group was conducted with a family practice clinic staff and another was conducted with a staff within an acute care facility. The third group was within a community setting with participants from many agencies. The groups were co-lead by a researcher and a clinician. The groups are being evaluated on participant satisfaction, learning outcomes and possible practice change. Interdisciplinary practitioners met every other week through 4 different one-hour group meetings. Group members(8 - 12 per group) read one article before each meeting on a topic selected by the group. Topics included research on Hmong culture or end-of-life care. Through the open-ended survey evaluations completed after the four sessions, practitioners reported satisfaction with the groups. However, further evaluation regarding learning outcomes and practice change is in process. A six-month follow-up survey was also sent to the participants of two of the groups. A process evaluation of the tape-recorded sessions and a content analysis of the evaluation surveys will be shared through this poster presentation.
